It’s no secret that JMU students like stickers. Everywhere you look, there’s a laptop or a water bottle completely decked out in the adhesive graphics. Stickers are a great way of self-expression for students. Thanks to websites like Redbubble, you’re able to find just about anything in sticker form. From your favorite movies and tv shows to flowers and quotes, your options are endless. All my friends keep asking me, “Carrie, what stickers should I get from Redbubble?” I myself recently ordered some more for my computer.

What’s really cool is Redbubble actually lets you create your own stickers to sell as well. It’s helping independent artists from all around the world get their work out there. It’s totally free and could earn you a little extra money if your sticker designs are in high demand.

I decided to walk around Carrier Library and take pictures of people’s laptops with interesting stickers. I asked them to tell me which sticker was their favorite and why.

“My favorite sticker is either the butterfly or the hot air balloon because no one else has them. I actually joined a sticker club with [Lauren James] and I got stickers every month but now I’m no longer subscribed.”

My laptop is pictured below. I love my polaroid sticker because I haven’t seen anyone with it, but my favorite is my colorful cactus because it was a gift from my sister.
